The Nomad is designed to stay one step ahead of enduro racing’s ever more DH trajectory.

An aggressive 65 degree head angle delivers V10 handling at Syndicate speeds.  165mm of VPP™ travel is delivered via a V10 style upper link and neatly recessed lower link design that's unique to this model.

The one-by only design permits some seriously compact chainstays.  While the rangey cockpit and relatively steep seat tube angle make for a surprisingly efficient pedaling position for such a capable descender

Internal cable routing comes courtesy of thin carbon fibre tubes molded into the frame from entry to exit, ensuring completely integrated hassle-free routing every time.

Too much of a gravity bike for your needs?  If so, perhaps check out the Bronson instead.

Want something more DH specific?  Then only a V10 will do!
